Today in Stadium P0rn: 10 Minutes of K.C. Stadium Talk
Here's a little something for the stadium porn addict in you. The Backpost caught up with David Ficklin, OnGoal Vice President of Development and lead honcho in charge of making the Wizards Stadium rise from the Kansas earth and came back with nearly 10 minutes of hot stadium talk from atop the under-construction supporters section.
It's informative stuff and mildly beef-tastic; dude takes a swipe at _______, saying "this is the first authentic American soccer stadium....there's other buildings in this league that are very similar to buildings in other countries that have been brought in here. We started from scratch...it's about taking the best elements from really unique stadiums around the world."
As the place comes together I'm rethinking my previous assessment of it's place in the MLS stadium pecking order. I think once she's up and rocking I think she'll break the tie for third place with Rio Tinto; Rio Tinto is losing points with me lately on an aesthetic front for leaving the stage exposed so much this season. Stage = Do. Not. Want.
